Is Z.14 (Hear my prayer, O God) (verse anthem for ATB, chorus, organ) meant? Hear my prayer, O Lord (for "SSAATTBBS,?vv,org") is listed as "inc." at this worklist which suggests that any version we might have here would be someone's completion and probably under copyright. - Schissel

These are both Z15, as are these CPDL editions as well. It has [been assumed been assumed] Purcell meant to set more than just the first verse. In Sven-David Sandström's 'completion' Purcell is a departure point for a meditation in a quite different idiom. Richard Mix 23:08, 2 May 2017 (CEST)
